Up in Smoke rallies to take the Game Face S.
Saturday, June 6, 2020
The Big Beast tallied his second stakes winner of the year on Saturday when Up in Smoke earned her first black type win in the $75,000 Game Face S. at Gulfstream Park.

The 3-year-old filly was last after a quarter-mile, then began a sustained move towards the leaders and struck the front in upper stretch. She drew clear late to win by two lengths in 1:16.22 for the 6 1/2-furlongs.

Up in Smoke won the first three starts of her career before finishing fourth in the 1 1/16th-mile Hollywood Wildcat S. last month. With Saturday's win, she is 4-0-0 in five starts and has earned $129,318. 

The winner is owned by Black Type Thoroughbreds and R. A. Hill Stable and was bred by John and Carole Rio. Up in Smoke's dam Therese is a half-sister to Grade 1 winner Proud Accolade.
